Cams Valentino crossed the finish line faster than any other four-year-old pacing gelding on a half-mile track in the history of harness racing when he won the $14,500 Open II in 1:49 on Monday at Northfield Park.

Cams Valentino (Art Official-Cams Valentine-Cam Fella) started from post one. He left from the gate and led the entire mile through times of :27, :54.2, 1:21.2 and 1:49, dominating his competition by 11-1/2 lengths.

Arold, Drury, Kohut LLC owns Cams Valentino. Kent Sherman is his conditioner and Aaron Merriman was in the sulky for the winning drive.

The 1:49 mile time also tied the all-age track record. The former four-year-old gelding world record of 1:49.4 was held by Wiggle It Jiggleit (2016) and the 1:49 Northfield record was solely held by Scott Rocks.

Cams Valentino now has five wins in 16 starts this year. Monday's victory represents his 12th career score and bolstered his bankroll to $88,634. He was heavily favoured and returned $2.20 to win.
